"Beat the Devil" - a Comedy Starring Humphrey Bogart & Peter Lorrie
Humphrey Bogart, Jennifer Jones, Robert Morely, Peter Lorre. Dir by John Huston. 1953, 89min. 35mm
In this exquisitely dry comedy with a witty script by Truman Capote, Humphrey Bogart stars as one of 5 unreputable adventurers. His associates include pompous fraud Robert Morley & Peter Lorre as the German-accented "O'Hara" whose wartime record is forever a source of speculation. Bogart gives his usual romantic/cynic role an enjoyably light turn & creates superb chemistry with Jennifer Jones.
